Mental Health First Aid Courses and Forestry First Aid Courses now available.
In addition to holding First Aid & Anaphylaxis Instructor and teaching qualifications; my diverse experiences from a successful nursing career have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and skills to add to First Aid Training. My passion and energy for teaching is my driving force along with a firm belief that First Aid is a valuable life skill for everyone.
My decision to set up as a freelance First Aid Instructor was reached a few years ago whilst working in my previous job as an in-house School Nurse in a large comprehensive school. As a result of having successfully implemented the "Supporting Pupils..." Department for Education Guidance and taught First Aid topics to large numbers of our staff the idea of starting my own First Aid & Anaphylaxis Training business was born.
Some of my previous Paediatric & Adult nursing roles include School Nursing; Asthma, Allergy and Immunisation Research Nursing; Hospital Paediatric Units; Public Health Nursing; NHS Direct; and Brain Injury Research Nursing - some in the UK and some abroad.
I live in Ringwood, Hampshire with my husband, teenage children and our energetic labrador. We relocated back to Ringwood in 2013 having spent four exciting years living and working in Canada. When not working we can be seen out and about in the New Forest, biking, running, and walking; enjoying all that this area has to offer.
